You were probably wondering how long it would be before a couple of Chicago Bulls fans created a website called Let’s Beat the Heat and made a promo video sampling Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.” In today’s NBA — where LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined up with Dwyane Wade in Miami and Kobe Bryant brags about being mentored by Jackson — it’s a totally normal thing to wonder.

But you don’t have to wonder anymore — that day is today. It finally happened, and that’s the video you see up top. Not to be presumptuous, but I think we can all agree this is the finest Michael Jackson update since T-Pain remixed “PYT” with Robin Thicke. In fact, I’d say that this song is exactly as successful as that one.

  2. This is GOLD! So many random things that make absolutely no sense. It’s impossible to pick out a favorite moment. Maybe the airball. The hammer in the TV. The TBJ microphone. The picture of Staples Center. The missed dunk.

    Biutiful genius.

  3. I like that they spelled it “Dewade”

  4. It looks like its from the 90′s I no its not but they have all this old stuff like the old school logo.

  5. Robin Thicke from Growing Pains?
